    A few things I think you guys are not aware of:

    a) global warming does not predict that there will be no snow ever again.

    b) global warming does not rest on an assumption that the climate cannot be changed by natural processes

    c) global warming does not predict every single year will be warmer than the last, only that the general trend will be upwards

    d) John Coleman is not a scientist and holds no degrees in science at all. His degree is in journalism and his career in TV weather and as a businessman.

    e) global warming does not rest on an assumption that water vapor is not a major greenhouse gas
    Any question?

    f) the term "climate change" does not mean that the prediction of ever increase global average temperatures will increase has changed. Its merely a more general term which also includes the effects of global warming.

    Except the general trend has been down for the last seven years.

    And global warming alarmists always seem to forget to tell you that Water vapor is the greenhouse gas responsible for 95% of the greenhouse effect and that CO2 is responsible for less than 5% of the greenhouse effect.

    So why is there more water vapor in the air, Skull?

    See, here is the result of a lack of education.

    A perfect of example of those who didn't read "1984," where the government keeps changing who we are at war with, and some simply accept it.

    Now here is a "true believer" who forgets that the original hoax was that we would all burn up. Now they call it "global change," and he will go with that as well.

    I offered my suggestion that the bigger threat to the country was all those moving to Florida and warmer climes, from the north. Obviously the continent is about to tip over!

    You tell me, I was merely stating a fact.

    why exactly do you feel compelled to lie on this issue?

    We can start with one simple premise: the Phd-trained scientists at NASA know more about trend analysis than you do.

    This is NASA's graph of global mean temp. The red line is their trend analyis of average global mean temp., which shows a steady upward trend over the last seven years, over the last decade, and indeed over the last half century.

    You and the other flat earthers have two choices now.

    You can either admit you were wrong about the temperature trends.

    Or, you can go back to lying that the earth has been cooling for the last seven years.



    My guess? You're going to go back to lying, because you are invested in this issue in an emotional, partisan way....and you don't care about scientific facts
